Fire destroys house, car in Mae Hia

A fire that broke out in a home in Mae Hia destroyed both the house and a car parked at the front early this morning, April 1.

The fire broke out in the Moo 6 house at around 3 a.m.

According to reports, the home owner, Mr. Winai Viriyakul, 67 awoke to see the fire having already taken hold, quickly escaping out the nearest exit.

Due to the materials stored at the residence, it took emergency service workers over one hour to bring the fire under control.

Along with destroying the house, the fire also gutted a Toyota Fortuner SUV.

A short circuit is suspected to be the cause of the fire.
